Elite Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (OTCMKTS: ELTP) has been moving steadily northbound in recent trading since reversing off $0.023 lows. ELTP made a legendary move back in 2014 to highs over $0.90 per share but has failed to do much since than slowly dropping over the years culminating in recent all-time lows. In the past there was heavy dilution which was a big contributor to teh falling share price but that has stabilized with ELTP only gaining 2 million shares over the past 12 months.

Net income was an incredible $2.3 million unheard of numbers on the OTC. While the Company does have some convertibles on the books total liabilities are only 9 million. The Company has 11 products currently bringing in revenues and is on track to top $35 million in sales in 2022.

For years ELTP has been developing its proprietary abuse deterrent utilizing the pharmacological approach to abuse deterrence and consists of a multi-particulate capsule which contains an opioid agonist in addition to naltrexone, an opioid antagonist used primarily in the management of alcohol dependence and opioid dependence. When this product is taken as intended, the naltrexone is designed to pass through the body unreleased while the opioid agonist releases over time providing therapeutic pain relief for which it is prescribed. If the multi-particulate beads are crushed or dissolved, the opioid antagonist, naltrexone, is designed to release. The absorption of the naltrexone is intended to block the euphoria by preferentially binding to same receptors in the brain as the opioid agonist and thereby reducing the incentive for abuse or misuse by recreational drug abusers. SequestOx™ is Elite’s immediate-release Oxycodone Hydrochloride opioid abuse-deterrent candidate which contains sequestered Naltrexone. SequestOx™ comes in 5 mg, 10 mg, 15 mg, 20 mg and 30 mg strengths of oxycodone.
